GP2X game

Nomis 0.5
Nomis Screenshot

A simple memory/pattern game written in C with the SDL libraries and Karl Bartel’s SFont code for the bitmap font drawing routines. Watch the computer choose a sequence of button presses, then repeat the pattern using the A B Y X buttons. So far I couldn’t do more than 15 steps.

Note to any blind GP2X gamers: Press Y for dog barking, B for honking, X for laser, and A for the hand clap.

The source code is included for educational purposes (i.e. how to write messy code). This program helped me get into GP2X development.

Copy the Nomis folder to anywhere on your SD Card. All artwork and wav files must be in the same folder as Nomis.gpe.

Start – Start Game
Select – Quit Game

A, B, Y, and X activate the colored buttons.

SFont – for a great archive and forum!

What Have I been watching?

Here is my Netflix rental list from the past 90 days (these are movies that I watched). I’ve enjoyed every one of these movies (spare maybe 2), and I wonder why that is. Have I been very careful when selecting? Or have I just been lucky? I think maybe it is because I’ve watched each one alone — therefore the movie becomes more immersive. Furthermore, when the movie is over and you’re reminded of the reality that you live in, you wish the movie hadn’t ended. I guess this is how I decide if a movie is good or not.
